    It's difficult to tell, but I'm inclined to agree that you have 3 pullets and a cockeral. However, in a couple weeks I could change my mind... [​IMG]

    WOW..Thank you for all the thoughts ...i would of thought for sure that #4 was Hen and #1 was Roo (just because #1 is only one to develop late and only one with thick legs)..... Either way....3 hens and roo is what i am hoping for....Thank you for all the help [​IMG]
